First equals twice third with second crushing third

Janet: Wager all $9,400 if you have confidence in your Final-solving abilities or Paul's wagering abilities. If neither, a wager of $1,400 is good for at least the extra prize potential of a second-place finish (if Kathleen misses Final) and can possibly score the win if Paul goofs in wagering. Importantly, this latter wager ties Kathleen should Kathleen wager $10,800 but give the incorrect response.

Paul: While a wager of all $14,800 may be a rational possibility (since it has the potential to tie Kathleen if you both get Final right), your more optimal choice is to wager $4,000.

Kathleen: Wager $10,800--wagering any more risks falling behind Janet's wager of $1,400.
